Consider that the United States Government is the largest single consumer of energy in the United States don’t you think it’s time for them to become a model of energy efficiency? A first step could be to require all federal buildings to use more efficient light bulbs, AND ask our bureaucrats to turn off their computers at night. According to a 1999 report by the Alliance to Save Energy, the federal government consumes about 32% more energy per square foot than the nations building stock at large. This inefficiency does cost all of us taxpayers ( an estimated $1 billion a year ) so lets do our part and lets contact or rep’s and ask them to theirs.
